MONpAY'S By-l.>W Sliall Ui6 city buy tho Kloctvlc Company's ploiil? This is tho (luco-tion asked in tho submission oi tlie bylaw on JUoadhy. llOforo answur-ing tho question it is l>cst to sec the position tho city Is in ut present. It itt hard up ngaiust tho wutor proposition. The present pumjp is worki.iti; nearly to its full capacity and anoth er pump is an absolute uuccsHity to give the city an ailonuaie water supply.' Thu Klectric Company has a cohtrnct with the city to supply power to operate another pump li a second pump is installed. th� city would have to put m ics own plant. To put in another plant fur that purpose alone would cost iiiQu-itely more than tho present contract price which the council considers too high now but which the company thinks is too low and for which they would not contract again. This being the case, the city would of "iio-ccssity go into the business of supplying light and power, untcring into competition with the compam-. Tho Company now has tho business and in order to get a share ot it the city would have to give cheaper light and power than the Company. This would lead to a cutting of prices that both parties would lose money till one or tho other gave up. ilore-over. If tlic city went into the business, it would have to operate on a small scale at first, which is known to be a money-losing proposition. The city apparently^ must have its own system which to bo prolitable must ))� large and without opposition. The city now has the chauc^i to buy a going business with the monopoly of the city. Moreover, tlie business is a profitable one. It would not be fair to the company to publish the figures but the council's committee and the Herald have both had an opportunity of examining the company's books and can state that thu profits of the Klectric Company since th'o installation of the metres are such for the past seven months as to provide nmplo profits to pay tlie interest on the debonturcs and provide a sinking fund to retire tho debou-lures for the whole sum named in tho bylaw. the wire Is eomparativftly now, The present system has a carrying cap-, aclty of tun thousand lights while there ares about sov^on thousand on tho service now. In those purtlcularfl tho Company, di-sngrecd with.lho un^ gineor's report.' However, to moot tho city's i-nor, based on this i-cport, thoy offered io split tho difTcroncc with an addition ot. five per cent, for tho business as a going concern. This makes the price of tho plant about sovcnty-flve thousand dollars. It would cost nearly if i�ot qunO ns much as this to put in a now system with tho disndvantagos mentioned abovo. Tho investment i.s a paying business. It is making good money now and under tho n\oro economical civic management will juako more. There may be a ." FtirHuTHiore, both were anxious to have it bo. lievod they had entirely forgotten each other.  One day the young ninn culled, o�-t:>nsibly on businrs.s with her fntlier, on which occasion it chanced she .sliould nnewer tlic door bell. The young tnan wh.s gnnio.

"1 nm sorry to say he is not,"responded ihii young woman, without tlie slightest sign oi recognition, "Do you wish to see I'.ini peraonnlly?" "Yes," replied tlie young man, ns ho turned to go down tlie steps. "I beg your pardon," culled the young womnii, as he reached tho low. est step, "but who shall 1 siiy call, cd." knottier Car I of Hardware MW^ ,..." TRACK TODAY Thos. W. Crothors, tho Ontario gentleman, who refused to ncccpt a fee for serving on the Ontario Hook Commission, will Ix) here nc.\t week. jV man who has such little use for money will be,well worth seeing. Lord lioborts, it is hinted, got out of Canada in a hurry because some of the cities, notably Toronto, wanted him to show himself off. We all ndmire liobs and the good old soldier knows it without the pouring in upon him of addresses, university de-prees, banquets, every hour of the (lay and brass banils to escort him from one street to another. The not !�ble men from across the ocean prefer to see Canada (luietly. Thoy do not come over to Canada to contract a tired feeling but rather to get rid of it. Tho city pays a big sum each month to the company for power, light and sundries. For tlie past seven months the bills for power hava been January -478.30. February ?43'1.8l, Jlarch. S-Isa.-JS, April 3508.81. May $013.-16, Juno ?621.'I2 and July, tho hot weather' month, $709.'IJ. The street lighting costs SSy.yo a month, light for the city building- about 30, and sundries, such,as new bulbs, etc.. another $30 a month. These nieun an outlay of about $o,."jUU a year. This is a big sum for what th'j city can in'oduce for ilself ut a great (leal smaller cost. It is not necessary to show UuU the cily cc)\ilil operate the system at a. great ileal less expensi.' Ihiin the coiiJp�ii\'. Tho present council, with Hu- exception of Aid. {!iiniiin(j;hani, sccni in favor of moving the plant to the river-bottom and the bylaw pnjvidos about fifty thousand doUais Ic r this work. Hut it is l.y n(j means settled that this shall be done. It will nc ile-cidod when it is soein whether or nut tho plant can bo ojieraled .qatisfai;-torily at the pi'e.seiit .silc. .Many are of the opini(jii that It can be doiii-and if that is so. onl.v n. small portion of the fifty thousand will have to Ijo spent in providing a suitable building and necessary in)provnments.
